Halloween, Hallowe’en, or All Hallow’s Evening is speculated to have originated by the Celtic Samhain and pagans over 2,000 years ago on October 31. In celebration of the eve of the Western Christian’s feast of All Hallows, western Europeans honored the end of the harvest season and the dead with bonfires and costumes to ward off ghosts and evil spirits. When Pope Gregory III declared November 1 was the day to honor saints and martyrs with All Saints’ Day around 1,000 A.D., he included many of the traditions of the Samhain. Eventually with the passing of the years, the traditions of Halloween evolved to be the holiday it is today. With trick-or-treating, costumes, parties, pumpkin carving, apple bobbing, visits to haunted houses, pranks, treats, horror films, sweets, and scary stories, Halloween has grown into an internationally recognized family oriented and community based celebration. To honor the traditions of the most favorite holiday for witches, goblins, and ghosts, here are the 55 Best Halloween Quotes.
